But a growing trend being done in Dallas and other places is raising eyebrows, among other things. Dallas hair stylist E. Cruz says, "When I first saw it, it was nothing I've ever heard before and I was like 'ouch.' "
There is laser vaginal rejuvenation, which tightens the vagina inside and out for better sensation. There is also what Sadie Burgess plans to do: labiaplasty. Simply put, the procedure "pretties-up" the outer area of the vagina, so Sadie Burgess can "wear different underwear and be more comfortable. I feel more comfortable in bed with my partner. It's more for me than anybody else."
The surgeries start at about $5,000. Dr. Brady says the outpatient procedures are relatively simple, but the decision is serious. Like any other surgery, there is recovery time and risks. This is also a social stigma. While the subject is important, not everyone wants their story out in the open. That's why we hid the identity of a North Texas mother of two who had her vagina tightened two years ago. I asked her if it was worth it. She says, "Yes, yes. Sex is much more fulfilling for both of us. In fact when I asked my husband how long it had been since I had the surgery, he knew to the day."
